Duration: 9 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

With more than sixty confirmed kills, Gunnery Sergeant Jack Coughlin is the Marine Corps’ top-ranked sniper. Shooter is his harrowing first-person account of a sniper’s life on and off the modern battlefield.

At the age of nineteen, Coughlin joined the Marines and spent the next twenty years behind the scope of a long-range precision rifle as a sniper. In that time, he accumulated one of the most successful sniper records in the Corps.

Now Coughlin has written a highly personal story about his deadly craft, taking listeners deep inside an invisible society that is off-limits to outsiders. This is not a heroic battlefield memoir but the careful study of an exceptional man who must keep his sanity while carrying forward one of the deadliest legacies in the U.S. military today.

“[Jack Coughlin] is one of the best snipers in the Marine Corps, perhaps the very best.”—Peter Maas, war correspondent and bestselling author of Love Thy Neighbor
